We were out birdin' with our buddies from Western Cuyahoga Audubon at the Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation a couple of weeks ago. The weather was gorgeous, as opposed to today's wind and rain and temps falling into the forties. On that fine day a number of folks were dipping their poles in the canal hoping to catch something good for dinner.
Being a big fan of Taj Mahal (the singer that is!), I thought of his song "Fishin Blues" when I saw this Green Heron doing better than the fishermen with their vast array of store bought poles and fancy lures.
This babies gonna catch more fish than you...
"First, ya gotta let it wriggle in yer chops and savour yer catch."
"Then ya gotta aim it in the right direction."
